The graduation rate for men's basketball players who entered during the 2001-02 school year is 33%. This compares to 74% for all UConn Storrs freshman and 73% for all UConn student-athletes receiving athletics aid in this cohort. The 2001 freshman cohort graduation rate among all Division I men's basketball programs was 49%.

None of this "graduation rate" matters...who gives a shit? i could care less...as long as a decent team is put on the fllor, they could be einstein or they could be dumb as rocks...seriously, who fucking cares????? Think i would care if Paul Pierce couldnt read? That would be his problem, not mine

if a player does not graduate it is nobodys fault but their own...plain and simple....is Calhoun or K supposed to hold their hand and walk them to clasas...im sure all coaches say..."go to class'....A GROWN GOD DAMN MAN HAS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF HIS OWN ACTIONS.

So right, institutions of higher learning have absolutely no responsibility in helping ensure their student-athletes graduate. It's not like the schools make any money off of the players....

Eliminate ALL college sports that make money for the school.

Yep, UCLA too...if it's good enough for the Jesuits, the rest of us can follow suit.

It's a thought anyhow...

Hey D--felt bad for you and the Pats last night, but fortunately, it passed quickly (well, okay--still feel bad for you, but not Bellitheantigenius)...Brees really is looking damn good.

At least you have the Celts, right? Until my Lakers take care of them at least...

damn - i knew the Saints were good, but.....damn. they are playing like the Pats of the Super Bowl years. And a pretty easy schedule the rest of the way. I am actually happy for them - always liked the Saints when I was growing up, and still do.

Brees DID have one hell of a game!!! congrats to him.

Yeah, what with the cards of late, and the failures of the Raiders and Niners, I had missed what the Saints had been up to! They are good; and like you, always liked them--Archie Manning, and then his kids...they were always a underdog sort in the 70s when I watched more often.

I think you might be dangerously close to manipulating a William Tell/TitoBack convergence!
